How to Choose and Wear Diamond Hoop Earrings with Style

How to Choose and Wear Diamond Hoop Earrings with Style

At Jeweler’s Touch, we’re proud to offer many brands and styles of diamond hoop earrings. They are fun to wear and highly versatile. Hoop earrings are also always fashionable (although larger hoops go in and of style). But the outfits and jewelry you pair them with make all the difference. We’ll explore the appeal of diamond hoop earrings and how to choose and wear them based on your overall look.

Why Diamond Hoop Earrings Are So Appealing

Hoop earrings have been worn since ancient Mesopotamia. They are eye-catching, whether worn with a dress, business suit, leather jacket, or t-shirt. Diamond-graced hoop earrings project confidence and femininity regardless of the wearer’s environment or age. Stunning and authentic, they naturally draw attention to the shape of the neck and shoulders.

What Diamond Hoop Earrings Should I Wear?

Diamond hoops are not one size fits all. When it comes to any type of jewelry, there are many tastes and preferences to cater to. Hoop earrings are no different. Some diamond hoop designs include channel settings with diamonds arranged in a single row, U-shaped earrings based on a prong setting (creating the illusion of diamonds suspended in the air), or a pavé setting with delicate rows of diamonds.

Other common types of diamond hoops include:

  • Huggie Hoops: These smaller hoops sit close to the earlobes and have a bulkier design compared to other earrings. The closure is usually hinged rather than detachable. Yellow or white gold huggies can be worn with everyday wear or a dressier outfit. For a fancier look, some huggies can feature multiple rows of diamonds.
  • J Hoops: Forming the letter J instead of a complete circle, J-hoop earrings are easier to take on and off than round hoops. They’re a little larger than other hoop earrings but are suited for those who don’t want too large a hoop.
  • Square Hoops: Square-shaped hoop earrings make a bigger statement without relying on size. They are a stand-out and a modern alternative if you’re looking for something different than traditional hoops.

What Types of Diamonds Go Best With Hoop Earrings?

Diamond hoop earrings can feature diamonds of any quality. Carat weight is a major consideration. Hoop earrings often have a series of small diamonds, totaling anywhere from ½ carat to 3 to 5 carats. But remember, the higher the carat weight, the more you’ll typically spend. You can select from many carat options to suit your style and budget.

Diamond Hoop Size and Your Outfit Choice

Size is an important factor in pairing diamond hoops with an outfit. Here’s a look at how to work with different sizes of diamond hoop earrings:

  • Small Hoops (3 to 8 mm): Add a hint of sparkle to your outfit, and can be worn alone or paired with diamond stud earrings.
  • Medium Hoops (14 to 40 mm): More glamorous and dressy, they also complement longer hairstyles. Thinner hoops are best for casual outfits. Thicker earrings are more suited for formal wear.
  • Large Hoops (41 to 70 mm): Large diamond hoops make a statement and look best with an updo hairstyle and a dress or fitted jumpsuit.

Pairing Diamond Hoops with Other Jewelry

Diamond hoops pair well with other diamond jewelry. If you have multiple piercings, they can even be combined with diamond stud earrings or smaller hoops. Smaller gold hoops work great with silver bracelets (or two-tone or tri-tone bracelets) or can complement one necklace or a set of layered necklaces. But creating an eye-catching look doesn’t have to be complicated. You can simply choose what looks good to you.
